Constant breaking of speed limit
Reported via desktop anonymously at 10:12, Friday 17 September 2021
Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council less than a minute later
The speed limit on the road is 30 mph, which considering the amount of school pedestrians and narrow pavements, is probably too high, but the main issue is that most cars driving up the road constantly exceed the 30 mph speed limit anyway. The issue is most pronounced at the top of the road (from around Park Road to Faringdon road). Given the narrow pavements it can be quite dangerous particularly with pets/children/pushchairs etc. It might be worth considering speed bumps or reducing the speed limit to 20 mph for example.

Thank you for your report, we have assessed this area in terms of accident data, the date does not indicate an urgent need to reduce the speed in this area.
Furthermore, the installation of speed humps is an expensive proposal which at this time Oxfordshire County Council do not have the funds to undertake. If you wish for the speed limit to be reduced to a 20mph zone, this will have to come from the parish council as it requires their approval as well as third party funding from them.
Therefore I would recommend if you would like to see a lower speed limit introduced contact your parish council and if they wish to proceed they will liaise with ourselves to undertake this. Otherwise please contact Thames Valley Police with regard to the speeding as they are responsible with enforcing this.
